Blue Sky are proud to have renewed our certification for ISO 9001, ISO 27001 and Cyber Essentials. It might seem like a collection of acronyms.  It may also seem like a lot of work.  At Blue Sky we see these as critical components of the value we deliver for our clients.  We have an eye for detail.  We have robust processes in place.  But saying it is one thing.  Proving it and standing by it are something quite different.  Which is why we take our certifications so seriously.

ISO 9001 was first introduced in 1987 and requires organisations to demonstrate that they do what they say they do, and that they have a Quality Management System in place to ensure consistency and improvement; leading to high levels of performance and customer satisfaction. Certified organisations are committed to continuous improvement and are assessed to ensure progress is being maintained.

ISO 27001 is the internationally recognised Information Security Management Standard that proves an organisation’s commitment to the security of their customer, employee and shareholder’s information.

With ISO 27001 in place, Blue Sky are able to minimise risks to potential data security breaches and reduce errors and costs, while demonstrating credibility and trust.

Cyber Essentials is a UK government initiative which includes an assurance framework and set of security controls to ensure the integrity of the data and information across our business.  For many of our public sector clients this is an absolute essential, but for Blue Sky we view it as a core deliverable for all of our customers offering further peace of mind that their systems and data are in safe hands.

So while these may be acronyms and logos to some, at Blue Sky they are a reflection of the dedication to quality and being better every day that have kept us growing for over 18 years.
